iOS 5 Countdown: Day 23 & 24- iTech Event

Welcome to day 23 and 24 of the countdown to iOS 5. A lot of our readers have requested a series of posts on choosing the right carrier for your iPhone or iPad, so todays post will be about the pros and cons of two of the best known names in the world of iPhone Carriers, Verizon vs AT&T.

Price- The price of the device itself is the same for both carriers, but Verizon charges $30 for unlimited data, whereas AT&T charges $25 for 2-gigs. Your preference should depend on what you use your device for.

Speed- AT&T users can get up to 6 megabits per second- around 3 times faster than Verizon.

Features- AT&T's iPhone has technologies which enable to do simultaneous internet tasks unlike Verizon, but on the other hand, Verizon can make your iPhone into a WiFi hotspot for a small surcharge.

Both carriers have advantages and disadvantages, and your choice really depends on your needs. Thanks for reading and don't forget to tune in tomorrow for Verizon vs Sprint!


  1. So is Sprint pretty much confirmed to carry the iPhone? I'm really tempted to drop Verizon, and get Sprint and an iPhone.

  2. It is not set in stone, but Sprint is highly likely to carry the next iPhone (5/4S).
